Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

While Skoda Fabia Estate safety levels have not been tested by independent crash assessors, Euro NCAP, the hatchback version was awarded four stars out of five.

Take into account the fact that other small cars like the Renault Grand Modus and Peugeot 207 SW have received five stars and the Fabia is not best in class.

There are four airbags and ABS as standard. All models also come with an immobiliser and central door locking, while higher equipment models get an alarm, remote central locking and curtain airbags.

For an additional anti-theft measure, the under seat storage trays are great for hiding valuables from prying eyes.

It may be a small estate but the Fabia Estate's boot is impressively large with 480 litres of luggage room behind the rear seats - that's more than a BMW 3 Series Touring. The rear seats split and fold down to boost the overall carrying capacity to 1,480 litres - again, more than many larger estate cars.

This makes it ideal for families and there are plenty of useful features throughout the well-designed cabin. The air-conditioned glovebox (available on higher spec models), driver’s armrest and roomy door bins are helpful, while rear passengers share a central cupholder to avoid any spillages.

Family buyers would be sensible to opt for darker interior fabrics as the cream upholstery doesn’t look durable and chocolate smudges or blackcurrant stains may prove tricky to clean. The roomy boot also has handy hooks and a luggage net to keep things neat and tidy.
